The Arroyo Arts Collective (AAC) has sponsored a beatification project through the North Figueroa Business District that we call “Good Fences”. Artists and other community members have created original artwork which will soon be visible on the backside of three separate restaurant outdoor seating bump-out installations, in the form of vinyl stickers adhered to the K-Rail barriers, and will be observable to drivers and from across the street.

Each artist has created imagery incorporating a North East LA (NELA) theme including, but not limited to, its vibrant history of art, architecture, atmosphere and activism.

Artwork will be located on the east side of the 5900 block of North Figueroa Street between Bearded Beagle and Kitchen Mouse. On the West side of the street, the work will display on the 5700 block in front of Otoño and on the 5600 block in front of Civil Coffee.

Good Fences project strives to unite the rich cultural heritage of the community with the creativity of artists to provide a positive solution to what on the sidewalk side is a welcoming environment, yet on the street side currently looks like a construction zone.
